Dr. Raj’s 5 Steps to Relief

MiraLAX® is an over-the-counter option that softens and eases your bowel movement.

1. Hydrate

Water can keep your stool softer and easier to pass. While it depends on the individual person, try to drink at least eight glasses of water per day.

2. Exercise

Moving your body can stimulate your intestinal muscles and move stool through the colon.

3. Eat Enough Fiber

You should be eating 25 to 30 grams of fiber daily. Foods such as beans, lentils, berries, whole grains and dark colored vegetables are good sources.

4. Ask for Help

It’s ok to talk about constipation with your doctor. Remember, your long term comfort is at stake. Try making a list of questions ahead of your visit to help start the conversation.

5. Try a Gentle Laxative like MiraLAX®

Unlike stimulant laxatives, MiraLAX® uses the water in your body to hydrate, soften, and ease—unblocking your system naturally.

Use as directed for occasional constipation.
